Can We Assume;Any Combination Of A Perry/Romney/Rubio/Christie Ticket Will Topple Obama?

Posted on 07/28/2011 1:21:22 PM PDT by Liberals_R_BiPolar_Turkeys

It would appear that a Perry/Rubio Ticket is Obama's worst nightmare.{Agreed?}If not,even a Perry/Romney ticket would also cause a 55/45 Landslide in 2012. The best advantage with Perry is that he represents the deep red south! Obama can kiss North Carolina,Colorado & Florida good-bye.Nevada? well,Obama can kiss Nevada good-bye as well so long as Harry Reid doesn't try to pull a fast one again with his union buddies "Upgrading The Voting Machines". A Perry/Bachmann ticket will work well too,but we need Rubio more.Marco Rubio=65% Of Hispanice Votes.

No. Don’t assume anything. We take for granted how many people stay informed on the issues. The reality is a majority of people just care who wins American Idol and for President, is just as popular to vote for.

No, I don’t think you can assume that. Especially if Romney is at the top of the ticket. He won’t inspire centrist voters, he will repel conservatives, and he won’t be liberal enough to draw liberals away from Obama, however much they may complain about Obama right now. You can only hope for a Republican win if the ticket is rather conservative but still exciting and inspiring, as Reagan was. Rubio would certainly be a good addition; so would West. There should be no assumptions when facing Obama’s corrupt and frighteningly well-financed machine; they are quite capable of stealing an election.

I wouldn't assume that ... no.

According to the latest polling data, you only need a good and stiff wind.

No. And Rubio is ineligible.

Nice list of RINOS. I would not vote for any of them.

I’d like a Marco Rubio/Liz Cheney ticket!

They are both well equiped and unafraid to punch reporters and debate opponents right in the mouth!
(verbally, of course...)

They know the facts on a wide range of issues, and very capably dismantle the lies of the liberals.

Palin/Rubio

See my tagline, spoken as a Texan well-acquainted with Perry.

By next Nov we could run Larry the Cable Guy and win in a landslide.

Rubio is NOT a natural born citizen.

His father was not naturalized until Marco was 4 years old.

Just because Obama is what he is and has gotten away with it doesn’y mean that two wrongs make a right.

And don’t think that the Democrats wouldn’t jump all over Rubio-—and constitutionalists-—for looking the other way while blasting Obama’s non-eligibility.

Let’s stand on the Constitution and the Founders’ understanding of constitutional concepts and leave cheap politics to the other side.

Exactly. It’s all about who can win so we can continue our path to destruction.

Don't even try it. Any ticket with Romney on it will cause a 3rd party bid that will split the GOP wide open.

What's more, many of us on FR will support that 3rd party.

I don’t think Romney will be at the top of the ticket assuming Perry Runs. Just wait till he performs at the next debate. alot of voters haven’t seen much of Perry just yet. I have,, He Is SO PRESIDENTIAL !!! whereas Obama is a stuttering democrat who is as boring as a turnip without a teleprompter.

Assume absolutely nothing about what ticket would beat 0bama in 2012. I very clearly remember many FReepers “assumed” inaccurate polling, the PUMAs and the “Bradley Effect” would prove the pundits wrong and push the McCain-Palin ticket past 0bama-Biden in 2008.

And now...

Obama has the power of incumbency and will be able to control the argument on many fronts. He also has a near-100% alliance with the “media,” and a lot of voters’ minds are still made up late in the game by their decidedly progressivist propaganda.

Plus, let’s not forget he’s going to have more than $1 billion in campaign funds, dwarfing anything a challenger will be able to garner.

No matter the condition of the country... high unemployment, crime, housing issues, border problems, etc... Obama is still going to be very difficult to beat. His baseline of support is going to be minimally in the mid-40% range. More than 47% don’t pay a cent of income taxes, and they LIKE it that way. Plus, several millions of voters just simply like him. It can’t be explained other than “it’s just a feeling” they have. And, c’mon... as for the minorities... they’re not going anywhere.

We like to think this or that development will certainly lead to Obama’s being wiped out in an electoral tsunami. Because the dems have a guaranteed lock on the Northeast (save for maybe NH), the West Coast states, Illinois and several others, the GOP nominee is going in with a distinct disadvantage. The GOPer will have to engage in a state-by-state strategic slugfest through the swing states to assemble the necessary numbers to get over the top.

Of course, it’s possible to win against Obama, but let’s face reality... America is NOT the kick-ass, conservative nation anymore that propelled Reagan over Mondale by a 49-state blowout. Wins against the dems in the general elections (which bring a much broader turnout vs. the mid-terms) are going to be tortuously close.

So the only assumption we should have is the GOP nominee has his or her work cut out to win on Election Day.
